Fight for Your Run☆
Hitomi promoting Fight for Your Run☆
Artist: hitomi
Release Date: 2008.08.20
Genre: Pop
Label: Avex Trax
Format: Digital single

It has been 2 years since her last single Ai no Kotoba, Hitomi is finally back from a 2 year hiatus! On July 11, 2008, she announced that she is currently pregnant and is married to actor Haneda Masayoshi. Of course, this time the news is real. The recent photos shows her with the big tummy, which is more than enough to prove that it`s real now. The promotion picture does not count (I believe that’s when she’s about 1-2 months pregnant…or possibly not yet). For those who don’t know who hitomi is, remember the anime Inu Yasha? hitomi sang the 2nd OP labeled I am.

The special photobook cover that was included with first press DVD.

To celebrate her third year since her debut with Momo no Hanabira, Otsuka Ai held a special concert at Hibiya Yagai Ongaku-Do on September 9, 2006 entitled 【LOVE IS BORN】~3rd Anniversary 2006~. But this was more than an anniversary concert for her, as September 9 was also her 24th birthday and hence the title of the concert “Love is Born” as Ai’s name means “love” in Japanese.

The concert’s DVD was released on January 1, 2007 making it the 3rd DVD concert released by Ai. In addition to a special 40 page photobook that was released as a first press item for the DVD, fans who pre-order the DVD online from mu-mo by November 16, 2006 also received a replica of the staff passes used at the concert.
